Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 6-7-77

I am off from work today and it is raining in Thailand and I am lazy and blah, blah, blah. Have over 500 GB's of epic Dead (and other spectacular bands) to choose from. I went to poke around to listen to something (I downloaded) I have not had time to listen to yet. I saw one of my old favorites shining bright before me: 6.7.77 Winterland.

Busted it out and holy FLACness Batman, this one smokes in all aspects. Bertha was a nice treat from start to finish. I love that Fat Spring sound, LL Rain was appropriate, Peggy O is always sweet from 77. Love that killer Music to get the show rollin. S/F is chill. Candyman fine, my fav is the TS > AM Dew! Nice Stuff!

An all round classic 77 show.

Grateful Dead
June 7th, 1977
Winterland, San Francisco, CA

Updated Lineage:
SBD>MR>DAT with AUD Patches in Peggy-O and UJB from source: AKG D220 mics> Tandberg 10X MR taped by Bob Menke and Reinhardt Hollwein> Rob Bertrando's first-gen reel> DAT
[patch source had been marked: AMR>DAT by Rob Bertrando using AKG D220 mic's into a Tandberg 10X reel to reel.]
DAT>CD transfers, including
patches by David Hollister. CD>WAV(EAC Secure mode)with editing of patches
to raise volume of patches to audibly match adjacent SBD source, conversion
to SHN, and uploading by Keith Bode. David Hollister's original transfer
done approximately 1999. Editing of patches, SHN conversion, and uploading
done in May, 2004. I believe this transfer of the show has not been widely
spread, and I am glad to have been involved in the editing and making of the
show available.

Thanks - haven't listened to this one in a while. Such great energy this night. I'm only up to Tennessee Jed right now but I am thoroughly enjoying this; the Bertha and Jack Straw were fantastic.

The only qualm I have with this era, and it is a small one, is the sometimes incongruous drumming style that Mickey and Bill employed on a few particular songs; specifically, the fast "cowboy" tunes that Bob would sing. It's actually not bad on the el paso here, and this show is not particularly marred by it. But check out virtually any '77 Big River or Mama Tried and you will know what I'm talking about. Billy had it right in '72 when they did these; the drumming was light, fast, not too much OOMPH on the beat. The later versions of these songs were dragged down by drumming that was too "heavy," in my opinion. Who knows, maybe it was disco's fault.

Always loved the Terrapin-MD here. Sublime.

Thanks!

Edit: The Peggy-O here is amazing as well.

" Who knows, maybe it was disco's fault"

I think it was Bob's fault for not giving those tunes a much needed rest. It's no secret that Billy hated ( or grew to hate probably ) playing those tunes. To me those tunes more often than not sound odd once the band evolved out of that sound post 74

Yeah. After '74 they stop sounding like fast-paced cowboy tunes and just sound like anachronistic, plodding things. It's almost like a car that's running on the wrong type of fuel...

I think part of the problem was bringing back Mickey.

I definitely agree - it was a problem for THESE TUNES despite the fact that it was not a negative change overall (at least in my opinion). The two drummers added a huge amount of energy, but only in certain places. It's these songs that exposed the weaknesses of having that brand of percussive power.

Listening to the AUD of this show and am wondering why it is not an MOTB. Recorded by Menke, like the 6-4 show. Did he just have a bad seat?
